Clerkenwell Design Week 2019: Roger Lewis Celebrates 30 years with Industry Leading Innovation

Leading furniture designer and maker and BCFA Member Roger Lewis, will unveil an industry first at Clerkenwell Design Week (21-23 May) to mark its 30th anniversary. Its new bespoke product offering, The Customiser app, combines cutting edge technology with craftsmanship to allow the A&D community to create truly bespoke pieces for clients.

The new app enables designers to stretch their imagination to see their own artwork printed onto the finest fabric before being hand-upholstered to the popular Roger Lewis Sintra chair.

Throughout the event, visitors are invited to try the app on the Roger Lewis stand to create their own unique piece of furniture.

“We’ve been developing our new customising tool for quite some time and we’re really excited to unveil it at Clerkenwell Design Week - not least because 2019 is such a significant year for both organisations”, comments Nick Lewis, design director at Roger Lewis.

“Our latest concept was born from an understanding of the A&D sector’s desire for furniture with a unique point of difference; something that can be made completely bespoke to suit their client’s needs. The Customiser app is the first of its kind in our industry, and it allows us to celebrate our proud upholstery heritage with cutting-edge innovation to mark 30 years in business.”

The second-generation, family-run business will showcase its future-facing approach and skilled craftsmanship in an engaging, interactive space at the show.

From factory floor to festival: Crafted with passion and pride, delivered through innovation

Bringing key elements of the Wiltshire-based factory to London’s Clerkenwell, Roger Lewis’ master upholsterers will be based on the stand to demonstrate their craft. 

A hero selection of the latest products will also feature, including the Sintra and Onyar pieces, providing visitors the opportunity to view the fine detailing up close. Design director Nick Lewis will be on hand to provide the creative context to the products, which draw inspiration from around the globe.

In addition to the core ranges, a never-before-seen piece designed by the highly acclaimed designer Richard Jones will offer festival-goers an exclusive first look.
